Here some info on the EP:
This EP was made from scratch and mastered within 72 hours, in Hoi An, Vietnam / with a pair of Beyerdynamics (headphones)
on a Lenovo laptop with Renoise and FL-Studio… A lot of coffee and Weed made this EP rather than me.
Samples and sounds are from my personal library of recordings, from amongst other: Serbia, Turkey, Nepal
and a coffee shop called highlands coffee here in Vietnam.
Normally I would never spin out stuff like that for a proper production,
but I feel the rapid contructipon of this EP have made a inherent consistency trough 30 minutes of sound
that shouldn’t be tampered with. The overall theme of the EP is a derivation of my personal journey through the last 4 months,
scooting around confused in the east parts of the world, where I found a strange insisting Irony witch I really would like to underline,
is the mood of this EP. On this EP I resampled myself multiple times, in fragments and in long stretches, amongst other funny things,
you might be able to hear the ‘fight recording’ from Uskudar in both ‘I am the acid Puppy’ and in ‘horror quest’.
My favorite track is “I am the Acid Puppy”
The sound of Mechamantra are conducted with the Maxime: “Within all repetitions lie a hidden truth”.
Today we find ourselves surrounded by unused mechanics and algorithms / seemingly worthless humming noises on every street corner,
strange but comforting vibrations on the back seat of the bus, the hollow body of social structure, the way we communicate in patterns.
Ever changing repetitions is the ultimate pattern, the fragments of life. Yet we as humans in an everyday society,
seem to forget that we generate all these algorithms, for we do not take full use of the potential in our surroundings,
we do not strive for an economical use of vibrations…
That’s why Mechamantra is on the job, bringing out the true value of simple repetitions, with a twist,
in sounds that feel like tension and circus-like irony. Yes, Mecha loves to bring out the Irony of culture in music and patterns.
The Mechanical Mantra is how we will regain our lost ethereal connections and abilities, a practice that is easily and conveniently done trough modern technology.
Trough manipulation of the mundane Mechanical procedures of our modern immediate surroundings, be it machines in our everyday life,
or the straight up mechanics of social structure, we can transform the function of these mindless things,
and rise to a higher level to produce something else than what they were intended to.
